Andante piu mosso 

The half moon westers low, my love. 
And the wind brings up the rain; 
And wide apart lie we, my love. 
And seas between the twain. 

I know not if it rains, my love, 
In the land where you do lie; 
And oh, so sound you sleep, my love. 
You know no more than I. 

Adagio 

He would not stay for me; and who can wonder? 
He would not stay for me to stand and gaze , 
I shook his hand and tore my heart in sunder 
And went with half my life about my ways . 

Now to her lap the incestuous earth 
The son she bore has ta'en. 
And other sons she brings to birth 
But not my friends again. 

Andante 

The weeping Pleiads wester, 
And the moon is under seas; 
From bourn to bourn of midnight 
Far sighs the rainy breeze: 

It sighs from a lost country 
To a land I have not known; 
The weeping Pleiads wester. 
And I lie down alone. 



Moderate 

Oh turn not in from marching 

To taverns on the way. 

The drought and thirst and parching 

A little dust vlll lay, 

And take desire away. 

Oh waste no words a-wooing 
The soft sleep to your bed; 
She is not worth pursuing, 
You will so soon be dead; 
And death will serve instead. 

Allegro 

In the morning, in the morning, 
In the happy field of hay. 
Oh they looked at one another 
By the light of day. 

In the blue and silver morning 
On the haycock as they lay, 
Oh they looked at one another 
And they looked away.

STORIES OF THE OPERAS 

L'ORACOLO 

It is the Chinese New Year. The devout are going to the House of 
Prayer and the revellers are returning from opium dens. Chim-Fen, the 
proprietor of one of these, pretends to love the nurse, Hooa-Quee, in 
order to gain access to the house of Hoot-Sin, a rich merchant, whose 
niece, Ah-Yoa, is the real object of his ambitions. Ah-Yoa loves Win- 
San-Looee, however. Chim-Fen overhears Hoot-Sin consulting Win-Shee, 
a learned astrologer, as to the future of his beloved little son, and deter- 
mines to use the predictions of evil fortune that are to befall the child 
for purposes of his own. He kidnaps the child. The frantic Hoot-Sin offers 
the hand of Ah-Yoa to whoever can find his son. Win-San-Looee suspects 
Chim-Fen, forces his way into the opium den, and rescues the little boy. 
Chim-Fen pursues him, kills him, and pushes the child down a trap-door. 
Ah-Yoa goes mad when she sees the dead Win-San-Looee, and Win-Shee 
determines to discover the murderer. Passing the child's hiding place, he 
hears him crying and rescues him. He then lies in wait for Chim-Fen and 
strangles him with his own queue so cleverly that a passing policeman 
sees only two Chinamen quietly talking. 

(Oscar Thompson's International Cycloptdia of 
Music and Musicians, Dodd, Mead & Company) 



The Letter Scene from 
EUGEN ONEGIN 

Tatjana is in love with Onegin. One night, excited and restless and 
unable to sleep, she begs her old nurse to tell her stories. While listening, 
she tries to conceal her emotion, then begs the nurse to bring her writing 
materials and to leave her. Tatjana begins a long letter to Onegin, but 
finds it difficult to put her overwhelming thoughts on paper and makes 
many fresh attempts. The night wears on, but she is heedless of the 
time. At dawn she has finished her letter, and when the nurse comes to 
her room, gives it to her to be sent to Onegin. 



AMELIA GOES TO THE BALL 

The curtain rises with Amelia's frenzied preparations for the first ball 
of the season. Her husband enters and reveals that he has intercepted a 
letter sent by Amelia's lover. He upbraids her, and declares he will shoot 
the lover. Amelia is upset by these threats, not because she fears for her 
lover, but because she is afraid she will be prevented from going to the ball. 

Her husband demands the lover's name; Amelia agrees to tell him if 
he will promise to take her to the ball. She reveals that her lover lives on 
the floor above. The husband rushes out, threatening to shoot him at sight. 

Left alone, Amelia fears that a serious quarrel between the men will 
endanger her chances of attending the ball, and going out on the balcony, 
calls to her lover. She warns him to escape. The lover immediately slides 
down a rope ladder to Amelia's balcony. He proposes that they elope. 
Amelia refuses, having her heart set on the ball, and asks him to return 
later with his proposal. Before she can convince the amazed and unfor- 
tunate lover, her husband is heard returning. Amelia conceals her lover. 
The husband, unsuccessful in his search, agrees that he will take her to 
the ball, but tells her if he had caught the lover he would have had 
his revenge. 

Suddenly he espies the lover, who comes out of hiding to demand 
satisfaction for the husband's bitter words. The husband, confronted by 
a young, vigorous man, many years his junior, abandons the idea of 
killing him. He urges reason instead, and tries to mend matters by dis- 
cussing love and the rights of marriage. Amelia, bored and impatient, 
reminds her husband he is to take her to the ball. 

Interested in their discussion, both husband and lover remain indifferent 
to Amelia's pleadings. When her husband rudely tells her to be quiet, she 
becomes desperate and breaks a vase over his head, knocking him uncon- 
scious. For a moment Amelia is at a loss. Then she calls loudly for help as 
the lover seeks to revive the husband. 

The police and neighbors rush into the room. Amelia accuses her lover 
of being a burglar, declaring that he entered the apartment and attacked 
her husband. Amazed by this deceit, the lover appeals to her, but Amelia 
says she has never seen the man before. The police hustle the lover out, 
and take the unconscious husband to an ambulance. 

At this Amelia burst into tears. The Chief of Police is touched, and 
remains to console her, saying that she still has her pearls and her money, 
and that her husband's condition is not serious. 

But Amelia tells him the reason she is crying is that her heart is set on 
going to the ball. Now what can she do? She cannot go alone. The gallant 
Chief of Police proposes that if she will not think him presumptuous, he 
will be charmed to escort her. This is all Amelia could wish for. Joyfully 
she accepts, and they hasten out, arm in arm. 

The moral of the story with which the Chorus cynically concludes the 
opera is, ' 'If Woman sets her heart upon a ball, the ball is where she'll go. "

GOETHE'S BIRTHPLACE IN FRANKFURT ON THE MAIN

JOHANN WOLFGANG VON GOETHE 

1749— 1832 

OHANN WOLFGANG VON GOETHE was born at 
Frankfurt on the Main August 28, 1749, the son 
of cultured and affluent parents. He attended the 
Universities of Leipzig and Strassburg, and in 
1771 took up the practice of law in his native city. 
But he subordinated his profession to his real interests, and soon 
became the leader of the short-lived revolutionary movement in 
German literature known as Storm and Stress. In 1775 he accepted 
an invitation to Weimar, the capital of Saxe- Weimar, from the 
eighteen-year-old Duke Karl August. Here he spent the remaining 
fifty-seven years of his life, with only one protracted absence, a 
period of two years (1786-1788) devoted to his quest of the Classic 
ideal in Italy. 

In 1773 Goethe published his first important work, Gotz von 
Berlkhingen. a historical play inspired by Shakespeare, and in 1774 
his first novel, the Rousseauistic Werther. which attracted the atten- 
tion of all Europe. At this time he began the six decades of inter- 
mittent work on his masterpiece, Faust. Shortly after his arrival in 
Weimar, Goethe was entrusted with important and varied state 
duties. He interested himself especially in agriculture and mining, 
and these interests led to his productive studies in the natural 
sciences. 

Poet, novelist, dramatist, critic, statesman, scientist and philoso- 
pher, Goethe is pre-eminent as an interpreter of life. The greatest 
of modern humanists, he ever sought to see life steadily and see it 
wdiole. He cultivated self-knowledge, self-development and self- 
mastery. He looked upon literature — and upon the arts, on most 
of which he has left his imprint — not as an escape from reality, but 
as an enhancement of life. All his works, notably Iphi genie. Tasso. 
Her))hvi)i uud Dorothea. Wilhelui Aleister. Faust, are imbued with 
the reverence for life that characterizes his great disciple, Albert 
Schweitzer. Another eminent admirer, Benedetto Croce, has said of 
Goethe: "His own life together with his works offers us a complete 
and classic course in noble humanity."

AUF DEM SEE 

Und frische Nahrung, neues Blut 

Saug' ich aus f reier Welt. 

Wie ist NatLir so hold und gut. 

Die mich am Busen halt! 

Die Welle wieget unsern Kahn 

Im Rudertakt hinauf, 

Und Berge, wolkig himmelan, 

Begegnen unserm Lauf . 



ON THE LAKE OF ZURICH 
And so I drink refreshing nourishment 
and new vigor from this open-air world. 
How sweet and kind is Nature, 
nursing me at her bosom! 
The waves rock our boat in time with 
our oars, as we row up the lake, 
and mountains, rising toward heaven 
through the clouds, seem to come 
toward us as we row. 



Aug', mein Aug', was sinkst du nieder? Eyes, my eyes — Why cast downward? 

Goldne Traume, kommt ihr wieder.^ Golden dreams, are you returning? 

Weg, du Traum ! so gold du bist: Away, you dreams ! Golden though you 

Hier auch Lieb' und Leben ist. may be: here, too, there is love and life. 



CHOR DER ENGEL AUS FAUST CHOIR OF ANGELS FROM FAUST 



Christ ist erstanden ! 
Freude dem Sterblichen, 
Den die verderblichen, 
Schleichenden, erblichen 
Mangel umwanden. 
Christ ist erstanden ! 



Christ is risen ! 
Joy unto mortals, 
whom those baneful, 
malignant, original 
infirmities had ensnared. 
Christ is risen ! 



FRUHZEITIGER FROHLING 

Tage der Wonne, 
Kommt ihr so bald ? 
Schenkt mir die Sonne, 
Hiigel und Wald ? 

Reichlicher fliessen 
Bachlein zumal. 
Sind es die Wiesen? 
Ist es das Tal ? 

Blauliche Frische! 
Himmel und Hoh ! 
Goldene Fische 
Wimmeln im See. 



PREMATURE SPRING 

Days of joy, 

returning so soon ? 

With your gifts of sunshine, 

hills and woods? 

Brooks are flowing 
more abundantly now. 
Are these our meadows? 
Is this our vale? 

Fresh weather so blue ! 
Heavens and hills! 
Golden fishes, 
swarming in the lake. 



181 



Buntes Gefieder 
Rauschet im Hain, 
Himmlische Lieder 
Schallen darein. 

Unter des Griinen 
Bliihender Kraft 
Naschen die Bienen 
Summend am Saft. 

Leise Bewegung 
Bebt in der Luft, 
Reizende Regung, 
Schlafernder Duft. 

Machtiger riihret 
Bald sich ein Hauch, 
Doch er verlieret 
Gleich sich im Strauch. 

Aber zum Busen 
Kehrt er zuriick. 
Helfet, ihr Musen, 
Tragen das Gliick! 

Saget, seit gestern 
Wie mir geschah ? 
Liebliche Schwestern, 
Liebchen ist da ! 



Gay-colored plumage 
rustling in the grove, 
heavenly songs, 
mingling their sound. 

Under the vigorous green 
foliage with its blossoms 
the bees are humming 
and sipping the nectar. 

A gentle motion 
quivering in the air, 
a charming emotion, 
a somnolent fragrance. 

Now a breath of air stirs 
more vigorously, 
but it is quickly lost 
in the bushes. 

But it returns 
to my bosom. 
Help me, ye Muses, 
to bear all this joy! 

Tell me what has happened 
to me since yesterday ? 
You charming sisters, 
my sweetheart is here! 



ZUM SCHLUSS 

Nun, ihr Musen, genug! Vergebens 

sucht ihr zu schildern, 
Wie sich Jammer und Gliick wechseln 

in liebender Brust. 

Heilen konnet die Wunden ihr nicht, 

die Amor geschlagen, 
Aber Linderung kommt einzig, ihr 

Guten, von euch. 



IN CONCLUSION 

Now, ye Muses, that will do! In vain 

do you try to describe 
how misery and happiness alternate in 

the heart of a lover. 

You cannot heal the wounds, inflicted 

by Cupid, 
but relief can come only from you, for 

you are kind.

WANDERERS NACHTLIED 



WANDERER'S NIGHT-SONG 



Uber alien Gipfeln 

1st Ruh. 

In alien Wipfeln 

Spiirest du 

Kaum einen Hauch; 

Die Vogelein schweigen im Walde. 

Warte nur, balde 

Ruhest du auch. 



O'er all the hill-tops 

Is quiet now. 

In all the tree-tops 

Hearest thou 

Hardly a breath; 

The birds are asleep in the trees. 

Wait. Soon like these 

Thou too shalt rest. 

(Longfellow) 



HEIDENROSLEIN 

Sah ein Knab' ein Roslein stehn, 
Roslein auf der Heiden. 
War so jung und morgenschon, 
Lief er schnell, es nah zu sehn, 
Sah's mit vielen Freuden. 
Roslein, Roslein, Roslein rot, 
R5slein auf der Heiden. 

Knabe sprach: Ich breche dich, 
Roslein auf der Heiden ! 
Roslein sprach : Ich steche dich, 
Dass du ewig denkst an mich, 
Und ich will's nicht leiden. 
Roslein, R5slein, R5slein rot, 
Roslein auf der Heiden. 

Und der v/ilde Knabe brach 
's Roslein auf der Heiden; 
Roslein wehrte sich und stach. 
Half ihm doch kein Weh und Ach, 
Musst' es eben leiden. 
Roslein, Roslein, Roslein rot, 
Roslein auf der Heiden. 



LITTLE ROSE ON THE HEATH 

A boy saw a little rose standing, 

a little rose on the heath. 

She was so young, and beautiful as the 

morning, so he ran quickly to get a 

close look, and saw her with great 

delight. Little red rose, 

little rose on the heath. 

The boy spoke: I'll pluck you, 

little rose on the heath! 

The little rose said: I'll prick you 

so, that you'll never forget me, 

and I won't let you pluck me. 

Little red rose, 

little rose on the heath. 

And the wanton boy broke 

the little rose on the heath; 

The little rose defended herself and 

pricked him, but her Woe! and Alas! 

availed her not, and she just had to 

suffer. Little red rose, 

little rose on the heath.

HARZREISE IM WINTER 

Aber abseits, wer ist's? 

Ins Gebiisch verliert sich sein Pfad. 

H inter ihm schlagen 

Die Strauche zusammen, 

Das Gras steht wieder auf, 

Die ode verschlingt ihn. 



From 
HARZ JOURNEY IN WINTER 

But who is that man there, aloof ? 

His path is getting lost in the thicket. 

the bushes close in 

behind him. 

the grass he has trodden rises again, 

and the wilderness swallows him up. 



Ach, wer heilet die Schmerzen 

Des. dem Balsam zu Gift ward, 

Der sich Menschenhass 

Aus der Fiille der Liebe trank I 

Erst verachtet. nun ein Verachter, 

Zehrt er heimlich auf 

Seinen eignen Wert 

In ungnijgender Selbstsucht. 

1st auf deinem Psalter, 
Vater der Liebe, ein Ton 
Seinem Ohre vernehmlich, 
So erquicke sein Herz ! 
Otfne den umwolkten Blick 
Cber die tausend Quellen 
Neben dem Durstenden 
In der Wiistel 



Ah. who can heal the anguish of him 
to whom balm has become poison, 
who has drunk hatred of men from 
the overflowing cup of love I 
First scorned himself, he has now 
become scorner. he destroys in 
secret his own faculties 
in fruitless introspection. 

If there be in Thy psalter, 
O Father of Love, one note 
which can reach his ear, then give 
new life to his heart I 
Reveal to his beclouded vision the 
thousand well-springs so near at 
hand to any one thirsting 
in the desert!

2 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward 

to the proud. 

Larghetto — Allegro con fuoco 

3 Lord, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked 

triumph? 

6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the

7 Yet they say, the Lord shall not see, neither shall the God of 

Jacob regard it.

19 In the m^ultitude of my cares within me thy comforts delight 
my soul.
